This may reveal some interesting things.

I tested on a 30/10 UFB connection. (Not VF)

Is your upload traffic rate limited?

There is no indication that your ISP rate limits your uploads.

Is your download traffic rate limited?

Your ISP appears to rate limit your downloads. 

However, some of the measurements were affected by noise, which limits Glasnost ability to detect rate limiting. Details:

* Your ISP appears to rate limit your BitTorrent downloads. In our tests, downloads using control flows achieved up to 30901 Kbps while downloads using BitTorrent achieved up to 8647 Kbps.

* There is no indication that your ISP rate limits downloads on port 6881 or 44324. In our tests, downloads on port 6881 achieved up to 30594 Kbps while downloads on port 44324 achieved up to 30901 Kbps.

The issue with this sort of test is international jitter may significantly impact speeds. I know that Telecom doesn't throttle or shape any traffic but not sure that can be said of all upstream providers.

Glasnost is nothing new (link to 2009, when it was released), but since it requires Java it's something I won't be running on any of my PCs.

Yes, The good old Java drive by. My test crested the full 30Mbp/s that it can attain.
